“If he's ready to go tomorrow, I'll fight him. But supposedly he's not going to be ready for five months. I don't want to wait five months to fight right now. I'm feeling good. If I wait five months, that will give me two months to do [expletive] I don't need to be doing… I want to get back those losses I got.
